john kerry to issue these cautionary words. >> an intervention would, in our judgment, be a very grave mistake. it would be completely contrary to russian policies as stated now with respect to libya, syria, other places. and any acts -- the question is whether or not what is happening now might be crossing a line in any way and we're going to be very careful in making our judgments about that. >> cnn's ian lee is joining us live from kiev. what can you tell us about the airport and the air space closed? >> reporter: well, jake, the men that have taken this airport or who have been there, i think we don't know who they are but i think what we are seeing is the most telling. these are very professional looking soldiers. they have new equipment, new uniforms, and they are moving in a way that is not would be like a rag-tag force. we don't know why the air space has been closed. neither the civil administration here in kiev or in the crimea has given any reason why or when it will reopen again. but definitely tense times here. >> what do you know about reports of the russian military movi
of his presidency. he's dispatching the secretary of state john kerry to kiev. let's check in with our white house correspondent. >> reporter: secretary kerry is making tough statements. he'll travel to ukraine and meet with new leaders there and offer strong u.s. support. the senior administration officials too have been making these, offering these warnings hammering russian president put decision-making on this saying he miscalculated as well as beefing up warnings that we will isolate with other nations russia internationally. the secretary of state is preparing for an emergency trip to the center of the crisis. it comes after president obama and his national security team worked through the weekend of the dangerous escalating situation in ukraine. the president spoke by phone with leaders of canada, france, germany, poland, the uk after an hour and a half call with vladimir putin himself. senior administration officials say obama flatly rejected putin's reasons for entering ukraine and taking over crimea, telling him to back out. but also offering ways forward through dialogue or
of state john kerry touches down in kiev later today. >>> negotiations with the imf are under way as ukraine seeks to shore up its finances. ukraine's prime ministers are in a dire state. >> we need to quickly design and implement the austerity program. >>> in corporate new, glencore xstrata beats forecasts. >>> and president obama focuses his attention back on domestic issues as he prepares to unveil his fiscal 2016 budget plan today at 11:30 eastern. >> announcer: you're watching "worldwide exchange," bringing you business news from around the globe. >>> welcome to "worldwide exchange." a very different picture behind me compared with the start of the show in yesterday's session. 9/1 greens to red these morning taking the stoxx europe 600 up 1 is.2%. as you can see, the picture very volatile this morning. what we have heard is that russian troops have been removed from the border. exercises that they were completing on the western boundary of russia, being seen by the markets as a concession, as lowering sentiment and danger surrounding the situation in crimea at the moment. as
.s. secretary of state john kerry doing the same. mr. kerry has promised there will be a robust attempt. it will have the needed effect on russia. obviously the russian troops are in control there. they have moved in. and the crisis does continue. so the governments in the west are faced with a dilemma. >> thanks very much indeed. that he wants the view coming from kiev. let's find out what the position is in crimea at the moment. christian frazier is in sa fast poll. that he wants the mood like in sevastopol? >> it might be calm behind me, david, but it's not calm at the naval hq. a crowd growing and getting increasingly impatient. really the picture of the day for me was that brotherly tap on the hand at the gate between the russian soldier and ukrainian soldier. the crowds outside might provide the spot. it would just take the smallest thing to happen for the situation to get out of hand. certainly kiev authorities would not want that to happen. it's precarious. the troop buildup continues. we're getting reports as a i said, on the eastern coast of the peninsula and signs that maybe
, i think it is easier because the feeling in europe is that it's okay for john kerry to talk tough on the talk shows, over the weekend, no disrespect meant, but russia is closer to us. on the psychological level. it's worth $400 billion a year in trade for the eu. you have the ongoing basis of energy supplies from russia, gas in particular. the germans take a third of their total gas supply from the russians. it's a very much more involved relationship, and it's one i think that the europeans are conscious of not pulling the plug on, unless they really have to. so i think that might account for why it appears, at least, in terms of the pace of this sanctions process, that the europeans are moving in a slightly slower gear. >> simon from brussels with the latest from there, thanks so much. >>> there are conflicting reports whether the u.s. has issued that ultimat ultimatum to surrender. black sea fleet including an attack submarine and three war ships are based at the at the port of sevastopol. wife,000 russian soldiers to be in the city. last weekend president pient sent in 6,000 m
the fires and fighting that erupted in independence square. today the secretary of state, john kerry, toured the square where more than 80 people died in those protests. he pledged $1 billion in aid to ukraine and, again, called for russia's president, vladimir putin, to stand down in the crimea. that's a peninsula 400 miles from where we are now. a critical area for shipping right on the black sea. in addition, russia has a huge navy base there and it is russia's only port that doesn't freeze in the winnerter. as much as western ukraine tries to align withure open and the rest of the west, it is clear president putin does not want to give up russia's grip on this region. president putin's troops surrounded military base, blocked ships and raided government buildings. that happened in the early going. they essentially took complete control of the region, all with no bloodshed. as the stand-off drags on tonight, we are seeing signs that the tension is, indeed, building. as i mentioned, fox news confirmed minutes ago russia did test fire a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile. defense
kerry is set to travel. the foreigner ministrations policies. >> this is the ultimate result of a feckless foreign policy were no one believes in america's strength anymore. he will be joined by three foreign-policy experts that know russia and this crisis well. stephen hadley, former advisor to president bush, michael mcfaul who has been ambassador to russia for president obama, and nicholas burns, who is a diplomat. welcome. >> thank you. >> what is it about the foreign-policy that you consider feckless? >> among other things, the entire approach to vladimir says the russia president came to office, we have had to reset in a conversation overheard. medvedev to tell vladimir i will be more flexible. he continued denial that is east-west or cold war. it may not be as far as barack obama is concerned, but vladimir putin said the greatest disaster of the 20th century was the fall of the soviet union, to him it is clearly east-west, cold war. partews crimea has a vital of russia and he was not about to give it up and a major naval base. i think this was all predict able, but --
international law. just this morning secretary of state john kerry warned that russia is going isolate itself from the rest of the world if they continue with this aggressive posture. >> russia is going to lose. the russian people is going to lose. he's going to lose all the glow that came out of the olympics. the $60 billion extravaganza. he's not going have a sochi g8 and may not even remain in the g8 if this continues. >> tech sear kercretary kerry se last thing people want is this conflict with russia. they explained why. >> sending more naval forces to operate in the black sea is not a good idea given that we know that day has long passed. unless your intention to use them. i wouldn't send them. you have only economic options through the eu. >> they recalled all military reserve forces and defense officials there now are trying to get them ready for combat as soon as possible. ukraine officially shut down the airspace for all non-civilian aircraft in the last few hours. so far as far as we know, no shots have been fired yet. this is a very tense standoff. >> the calling up of reserve is
.s. do given the importance? >> well secretary of state john kerry has been in touch with his colleague, neither country wants to intervene at this stage. in america, let's understand first of all there is no lust or desire on the part of the american people to intervene and get entangled in global war. we have seen that. we saw that with syria. it is interesting that foreign minister and john kerry have already over syria last august worked out a diplomatic approach. i think the eu, the united states and russia have to be deeply concerned about a very grim reality. ukraine is bankrupt. probably needs 35 billion in short assistance. russia has been subsidizing natural gas. is the eu, which is already dealing with austerity politics to bail out, is the united states which needs to rebuild at home and invest in infrastructure ready to intervene in another country. so there are real limits on both countries, the united states and russia. >> though kerry and labarov have been talking to each other. russia went right ahead and conducted a massive drill with 150,000 troops right on the border
. thank you very much. secretary john kerry is over in ukraine. president obama says he won't go to the g 8 and he spoke spoke to angela merkel. lots is going on in this story. but awful lot is going on in the ground there. thank you. >> there is no question this showdown with russia is dangerous. john mccain believes the the war is over but putin does not. senator mccain joins us. good evening, sir. >> thank you. i believe it because president obama r. president obama said 20 years ago the cold war ended. he said to medvedev tell val valentine's vladimir putin when i'm elected i will be more flexible. we are paying a very very heavy price for it. >> what do you think president putin is thinking tonight and what do you think that president obama is thinking tonight? >> i think that vladimir is thinking i got what i wanted crimea. by the way russia signed a treaty in 1994 guaranteeing crimea's territorial integrity as part of ukraine. but he is feeling good. he now is deciding how much of eastern ukraine he is going to cause problems in that really is something that we can't be really sure
kerry has said he still looks good. israel and palestinians to agree on the framework three peace deal by lay people with any final deal could take an additional nine months or more. carrie brought the two sides together back in july after a three year cap originally anticipated the final agreement being reached after nine months while us officials have not revealed what might you into a framework it is likely to include the possible outcomes on key issues such as borders security palestinian refugees and the status of jerusalem despite the little progress made. kerry says he remains committed and determined to reach a deal is in the region more than a dozen times since july. recently both sides have softened their stance is well daddy the effectiveness of the us secretaries efforts here recently came in for heavy criticism from israeli politician some accusing him of being an anti semite trucking kerry to suddenly rediscovered his jewish roots recruiting his brother tribute to the israelis that his great uncle was a holocaust victim. i had the right notes not much for him on the pacif

. this is a declaration of war by vladimir putin. u.s. secretary of state john kerry condemning russia's actions and will travel to kiev tomorrow for talks with the new ukrainian government. >> president putin is using force in a completely inappropriate manner. fears he's going to lose on the international stage. russia is going to lose. >> steve, it's the one possible benefit of seeing russian aggression here, but actually, it could boost popular support for the new ukrainian government. >> i'm not sure about that, julia. i think this is a country that's split top to bottom, east to west, north to south. the russians invaded crimea. it is the russian troops in force with a lot of military hardware. because they said and putin said with the backing on the russian parliament they were defending the interest of russian speakers, just to remind viewers, crimea was russian. 58% of the minimum of the population believe themselves to be russian. it's a similar story in the east of the country, as well. i don't know if you can hear behind me, we've got pro government demonstrations behind me and pro r

kerry has been in touch with his colleague. neither country wants it tus stage. in america, let's understand first of all, there is no lust or desire on the part of the american people to intervene and get entangled with global war. we saw that with syria. it's interesting that foreign ministers have already, over syria last august, worked out a diplomatic approach. i think the eu, the united states and russia have to be deeply concerned about a very grim reality. ukraine is bankrupt. it probably needs $35,000,000,000 in short assistance. russia has been subsidizing natural gas. is the eu, which is already dealing with austerity politics in europe. >> countries in there have serious trouble sglrm. >> need to rebuild infrastructure, jobs ready to intervene in another country? i think there are real limits on both countries, the united states and russia. >> even though kerry and lavrov have talked to each other, russia conducted a massive drill this week with 150,000 troops right on the border of ukraine. i know you have written about the fact that you are concerned that the amer

john kerry is due to immediate the leaders on tuesday to show support. the u.s. is suspending military exercises and trade talks with russia and says it may consider sanctions. meanwhile an international body that keeps an eye on security in europe is conducting a fact-finding mission in ukraine. there has been a standoff between russia and ukrainian troops at an air base in crimea and soldiers have apparently agreed to cooperate with the russians. the ukrainian soldiers at the base walked toward russian troops carrying ukraine and soviet flags and in a moment we will be live in moscow with rory but let's go to crimea where we have lawrence lee standing by. lawrence it has been a pretty eventful morning. what is the situation there? >> well, it's midday here in crimea and we may be about to learn something new perhaps as to the direction of travel in this conflict. remember all that talk of ultimati mushgs -- ultimatium and no shots have been fired yet but what happened at balbeck military air base in estopple, soldiers approached the armed russians guarding the base and said to them t
that one pair finally, paris, where secretary kerry was meeting earlier in the day with a russian foreign minister minister and then met with foreign minister of france. trying to find an agreement. this is the first face-to-face meeting with secretary kerry and the russian foreign minister. two jobs. once you convince russians to hold out forces in ukraine and secondly to try to convince foreign ministers to sit down for face-to-face talks with the cranium foreign minister. those two sides have not had talks at all. seven minutes ago, the foreign minister of russia left though the and was asked if he had just seen his ukrainian counterpart and he looked at the reporter and said, who is that. that is because he does not regard the ukrainian foreign minister as legitimate. he said no talks and walked away. >> ryan, thank you. for more on the ukraine, i am byned from washington resident fellow on international security at the atlantic council, he focuses on nato, transatlantice crisis. welcome. thank you for your time today. west shouldthe serve a two-pronged approach by giving support to t
of the midon, the crisis in the ukraine has changed its face. it hasn't dissipated. and today secretary kerry was greeted in kiev by ukrainians pleading for the continued support of the united states. and so having been so clear voiced in our support of the ukrainian people thus far since the tproe tests began last november, now is the moment when republicans and democrats should stand united in this congress so years from now when a group assembles in kiev marking the anniversary of this grave crisis they will celebrate ukraine's political sovereignty and economic rebirth with more chance of thanks to the united states. so, in what shape should this support come? first, we need to stand together in the next week to deliver serious financial assistance to ukrainian economy that is weak and is growing weaker as this crisis persists. a $1 billion aid package is a good start, but our real work must happen within the structures of the i.m.f., which can provide the potentially tens of billions of dollars necessary to fully right the ukrainian economic ship. and while ukraine does need to undergo e
